Planetary gears are widely used in modern machines as ones of the most effective forms of power transmission. In this paper, a special configuration of a gearbox composed of one stage spiral bevel gear and a two stage helical planetary gear used in a bucket wheel excavator gearbox is presented to investigate its modal properties. A lumped-parameter model is formulated to obtain equations of motion and the eigenvalue problem is solved. The modes are presented in low-frequency and high-frequency bands. Distributions of modal kinetic and strain energies are studied.
